spironolactone?

I was at a dermatologist appointment the other day as a follow up for some acne issues. I've been on epiduo for a few months now and it really has improved my skin. The only thing I get now is mild hormonal acne right around my period.. My doctor recommended either ortho tri cyclen or spironolactone to treat it. I'm unsure about the ortho since I have my paragard IUD and don't know about taking HBC (again). I'm wondering about the spironolactone since I know very little about it. I know its a diuretic but is sometimes used to treat hormonal acne. I also read it treats unwanted hair growth too? Does anyone take it or have any input on it? Thanks!
